It All Ends Here: Harry Potter’s Grand Finale

The beloved Harry Potter series finally comes to a close with the release of the final franchise of it’s film installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows this Thursday, July 14, 2011. It is a bittersweet end for many of the Potter fans who have followed the story from it’s very beginning, whether in book or movie format.



Tonight I got to catch the press screening of the film (thank you Warner Bros., Philippines :)) and I guess I can sum it up with these words: Harry Potter was amazingly breathtaking, captivating and enchanting 🙂 And yes, it is soooo worth it to see it in 3D format.

I’m sure many of you are more familiar with the story than I am (yes, I am not a big fan of the written series hehe…but the movies I loooove!) so I won’t bother to try to explain the story or whatnot (plus you may just hate me for accidentally giving out a spoiler or two, right?) so I will go with this instead. While driving home from the screening this evening, it dawned on me that the film reminded me of 7 very important life lessons:

1. In general, no amount of planning ahead is ever enough. Ergo: always leave room for spontaneity.

2. You always have a choice, even if it means choosing between a rock and a hard place. Despite that, however, the rock and the hard place, always have surprises in store.

3. Sometimes, people just surprise you.

4. Just as the song goes, you always get by with a little help from your friends. Whether or not you realize it. Or want it for that matter 🙂

5. Like I said in my last blog post, sometimes all you really need to do is ask .

6. All good things really do come to an end, but it isn’t all gone…perhaps it just evolves and becomes something better, even if you don’t see it at the moment.

7. Lastly, even if things change and people go separate directions, what is truly essential always, always, always remains intact.

And so while the curtain falls on Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, as well as all the other characters from Hogwarts, it’s magic will live on in many hearts forever.
